Easy Banana Pumpkin Cake is made with cake mix, bananas and pumpkin puree -- no eggs, oil or butter! It's light, slightly sweet and perfect for snacking!
Yes, you can make a cake without eggs, oil or butter! This easy banana pumpkin cake is perfect for using up that last bit of pumpkin puree or when you're running low on pantry staples!
We go through a lot of bananas in our house, so I make it a habit to buy a bunch whenever I'm at the grocery store. If we end up with too many, that means banana bread!
We just had banana bread on the weekend. But since I had more bananas to use up and a little bit of pumpkin puree, I decided to make something a little bit different today.
Did I mention we were also out of eggs? So, I used a cake mix instead of my usual recipe and called it banana pumpkin snack cake!
How to Make a Cake without Eggs, Oil or Butter
In this case, both the pumpkin and the banana are substitutes for the eggs and the oil. You can also use applesauce in place of butter and oil.
How to Make Banana Pumpkin Cake from Cake Mix
All you do is add the cake mix to a large mixing bowl. Then, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well!
I added nutmeg and cinnamon, so it's got a hint of spice too. Oh, and there's chocolate -- gotta have some lovely chocolate!
Grease or butter the cake pan very well, then pour in the batter, and bake it!
The cake is kind of dense, and definitely not dry! It's kind of crumbly when you first slice it, and it's actually easier to slice when it cools down.
When the kids came home, they absolutely loved this snack cake, so we're calling this one a hit!
All you need to finish it off is a light dusting of powdered sugar on the top. It adds a touch of sweetness, but you can definitely eat it plain, too!
